Shunt reactors are applied to long extra high-voltage (HV) transmission lines to compensate for their natural capacitance which otherwise could cause overvoltages under light load conditions. However, when the level of compensation approaches around 65% or higher, these reactors themselves can, due to contingency, become the cause of hazardous overvoltages(More)
Large induction motors, when they become disconnected from their synchronizing source and isolate with part of the high-voltage system, become self-excited as long as their inertia keeps them spinning and there is enough capacitance from the system to provide the magnetizing current for the machine and maintain air-gap flux. These induction motors,(More)
